This is an ILLEGAL original mix of a song I wrote; this apolitical-political song. I did it in response to a challenge for a song contest (spintunes.blogspot.com/2017/01/spintunes-12-round-1-challenge.html
) Im doing with music friends of mine. But then it turned out that I wrote it for my cat, who has grown weary of controversy and politics.
Spintunes has a 2 minute limit on its entries but my song wanted to be shorter. But if I were emperor there would be no limits and no song jail and no rules and no mandatory anythings. And you could write whatever song you like.
I was feeling politically glum becaujse of stuff. And I didn't really want to write an election song. So I waited until the last day and had written five songs already that I did not Like. And my tiny anarch-cat was messing with cables and climbing the soundproofing (which I tried to tell her "stop it!") so I grabbed my guitar and thought "ugh... elections..."
All I could think of was "my fellow Americans," I was thinking about someone giving a speech. I'm not feelin' it right now and also I don't want to pay my taxes. Maybe I should run for president so I can do whatever I want and the Mannabadoos can't make me do things I don't feel like. #entitlement
So I wanted to amuse the cat and make her fall asleep in her box next to my cylon-laptop, thus I made up a series of baby-talk syllables that pleased her and satisfied my need to make blameless commentary. I imagined what a little demagogue might say to what they thought was a nation of needy and short attention-spanned people. A people who wanted stuff NOW! Not necessarily you though. YOU'RE fine.....everything's fine...
Basically we're told:
"sure sure yeah right maybe okay behave or PRISON fear fear sexscandal have a nice refreshing 10 ADS THAT WILL MAKE YOU YOUNG!"
Kitty fell asleep and I wrote a song of what I sorta remembered. She liked the syllables, so we have the successful election of the leader of the mysterious Mannabadoos. Maybe they are from Xondor? (www.facebook.com/xondoronline/
Maybe their leader is someone subliminal, someone mysterious...
I suppose the lesson is that results come from money or MASSIVE numbers (which indicates money). But any dissent makes the Mannabadoo leader fretful and sullen...
As far as resistance, I don't know what to tell you. Mob analytics. numbers are the only way, and green is the only color power sees.
This is 1:33, the length the song faeries intended. And a vote for brevity is a vote for sanity.
I looped in protest for time the official entry:
And put noises at the end. Perhaps I will be disqualified; but enjoy it the way it was meant to be enjoyed - a Tiny Song for our Tiny-assed, Tiny hands election.
